This comprehensive clinical reference is edited by experts from the NYU-Bellevue Chest Service, which through its influence in tuberculosis care and education has been an integral part of the formation of the entire specialty of pulmonary medicine. The book draws on this extensive experience to present an authoritative account of the history, epidemiology, microbiology, immunology, clinical treatment, pharmacology, and prevention or control of tuberculosis. The book will serve as a definitive reference for specialists in pulmonary medicine, infectious disease, and public health. New to the Second Edition are more concise and focused chapters, new information on molecular biology from the genome project, and updated information especially for the epidemiology section.
